Draw the following.

A rectangle with adjacent sides of lengths 5 cm and 4 cm

A rough sketch of this rectangle ABCD:

(a) Draw a line segment AB of 5 cm and an angle of 90° at point A and B

(b) As vertex C and D are 4 cm away from vertex B and A respectively so the cut line segments AD and BC each of 4 cm

(c) Join D to C

ABCD is the required rectangle
